The Strange and Beautiful Sorrows of Ava Lavender
by Leslye Walton




Overview -
"An entrancing and sumptuously written multigenerational novel wrapped in the language of fable, magical realism, and local legend." --Publishers Weekly (starred review)

Foolish love appears to be the Roux family birthright, an ominous forecast for its most recent progeny, Ava Lavender. Ava--in all other ways a normal girl--is born with the wings of a bird. In a quest to understand her peculiar disposition and a growing desire to fit in with her peers, sixteen-year old Ava ventures into the wider world, ill-prepared for what she might discover and naive to the twisted motives of others.
